New Radio

The technical side of broadcasting. Think IBOC is a sham? Talk about it here! How about HDTV? Post DX reports here as well.

I have had some small radios but the little loopstick inside just does not bring in many signals on AM !
BEST portable for AM is My GE "Superradio 2" that has a very large ferrite rod occupying a large portion of the large enclossure, and that works !
the superradio also has some good speakers that sound really fine when you have a strong signal and can use the wide IF selection, pretty close to FM sound if the station is transmitting a good, clean modulation. Even Better on FM !
Only downside is the size. I drug that enormous portable all the way to Hawaii but the results there, in the middle of the Pacific ocan, were amazing ! :shock:
The little mini portables can serve as an emergency backup or for local listening :D

So, this works okay as an MP3 player. Not that I needed another MP3 player, but at least I can take some solace in the fact that it works for something. It isn't a quite heavy enough for a door stop.
Why don’t you do the smart thing and send it back for full refund.
